Two things off the top of my head:

1) What are you going to do regarding tuning?

2) I would advise starting with a 3.8" (or even 4.0" or 4.2") until you get that tuned in, then start moving down pulley sizes.

EDIT: I'm confused...is this going onto the car in your sig?

Your Riv is already supercharged.

So, are you going to replace the L67 in your Riv with a L36 and top swap a supercharger on it?

I think this topic needs alot more details. Sketchy information is going to get a sketchy response.
